Mark Bridger is 47. I doubt he would have taken much notice of his parents telling him not to surf porn.
This isn't about preventing children watching porn, this is about preventing everyone watching (certain) porn.

Because the education system put in place by those leaders keeps the population so ignorant and superstitious etc...?
